Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Wednesday, 20 September 2006

On Tuesday, Hong Kong's m.a.x. concepts of Maxim's Group opened its flagship restaurant, Lawry’s The Prime Rib. The renowned American fine dining restaurant, legendary for its rolling silver serving carts, is the eighth Lawry’s restaurant in the world and the fourth in Asia. It is situated at Lee Gardens, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.

Seating 240, the focus of Lawry’s Hong Kong will be on classic beef dishes, with the signature menu item of roasted prime ribs, cut to one of four preferences. The Lawry Cut (HK$380) is the original 10oz cut, The California Cut (6oz) (HK$285) is a smaller cut for lighter appetites, The English Cut (7.5oz) (HK$325) is thin slices deftly carved to heighten the rich beef flavour and The Diamond Jim Brady Cut (16oz) (HK$460) is an extra-thick portion for beef lovers.

Whichever cut you choose, also included in the price is The Famous Original Spinning Bowl Salad, spun on a bed of crushed ice, and tossed with the exclusive Lawry’s Vintage Sherry Dressing, Mashed Potatoes whipped with milk and butter and Yorkshire Pudding. Additional dinner accompaniments at a small extra cost include Buttered Peas, Creamed Spinach, Creamed Corn, Fresh Asparagus, Baked Idaho Potato, and Sizzling Skillet of Mushroom and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. Guests will also be able to choose from additional a la carte items.

Lawry’s key point of difference is in its preparation and presentation; its serving style includes table-side service, bringing an aspect of fanfare and theatre to the dining experience. The standing rib roasts are hand-carved to order and served tableside from Lawry’s 600-pound rolling silver carts. The silver cart, never before seen in Hong Kong, is a cornerstone of the tradition that has made Lawry’s a dining legend.

The making of a “silver” cart takes a dedicated person four months to build, working a forty-hour work week. Hand-crafted from 14 and 16-gauge stainless steel, each piece is individually molded and custom made. The carts’ signature domes are created from patterns and molds using a 300-ton hydraulic press, similar to the technology used in building aircrafts. A new cart is valued at more than US$28,500.

Lawry’s is a dining experience with a strong sense of tradition and heritage. It was established by the Frank family in 1938 and is now run by the third generation.
